IABP Full Form in Medical-Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump

The Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) is a medical device used in cardiology and critical care. It’s a mechanical device that consists of a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter with a balloon at its tip. The catheter is inserted into the aorta, the largest artery in the body, usually through the femoral artery in the leg.

Once inserted, the balloon is positioned in the aorta and timed to inflate and deflate in sync with the heartbeat. This inflation and deflation are controlled by a console connected to the balloon pump. When the balloon inflates, it helps to increase blood flow to the coronary arteries by pushing more blood forward, which can improve oxygen supply to the heart muscle. When the balloon deflates, it reduces the workload on the heart, allowing it to pump more efficiently.

The IABP is used in various cardiac conditions, such as cardiogenic shock (when the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs), during high-risk procedures like coronary angioplasty, or in cases of severe heart failure. It provides temporary mechanical support to the heart and can help stabilize a patient while more definitive treatment or recovery measures are pursued.
